The Seniors Information and Referral Center is a ministry that has combined the services and programs that were offered by the Allen Temple Community Seniors with the needs identified by seniors who participated in the communal discernment process in 2009. The resulting ministry is program designed to meet the comprehensive needs of seniors by establishing a structure in which seniors at Allen Temple and the East Oakland community can obtain information, resources, and referrals in a broad spectrum of topics ranging from healthcare needs to legal and financial concerns to social and recreational activities.

The Center is also designed to provide an opportunity for seniors to simply gather, connect socially and support one another, as well as provide outreach to seniors who may be temporarily or permanently sick and shut-in.
